100% RECYCLED ECO-WOOL

What is Eco-Wool? Eco-Wool is a blend of reclaimed cotton fibers from discarded garment scraps combined with a small amount of nylon made from the incredible RPET process of recycling plastic (PET) bottles into fiber. Through a proprietary scrap fabric color matching system there are no dyes or chemicals used in the process of creating such vibrant colors from what would otherwise be textile waste. Check out the process HERE.

Yarn: This hat is made from RWool and the yarn is milled in Spain by Ferre, a centuries old mill. Why Spain? Spain is home to the largest textile manufacturing factories in the world (Zara anyone?) and is a country that is decades ahead of any other country in recycling post-industrial and post-consumer textile waste produced by these factories. We  purchase this yarn from their American partner mill, Hickory Throwing in North Carolina. 

Production: Knit in Waterloo, NY by our friends and knitting partners at Mozaic Organization; a not-for-profit employing, assisting, and providing services to thousands of disabled person in the Fingerlakes, NY area. The raw knit material is then shipped in rolls to our Greenpoint, Brookyln sewing facility where it is cut, sewn, and finished by our lovely team.

Size & Fit
One Size
Length: 11-12" Inches (without fold)

Knit Wool is prone to stretch so if your hat feels a bit tight when you receive it, wearing it will quickly adjust it to your head. If you feel your hat starts to loosen too much over time, you can give it a hand-wash in warm water or machine wash in cold, lay it flat to dry, and it should spring right back.

Wool is a heavier material, rougher material, so these hats are meant to be worn in cooler weather. If you would prefer a lighter and softer option, take a look at our Upcycled Cotton Watchcaps!

The watchcap is a style that's existed for well over 100 years, though it's most commonly associated with WWII US Navy personnel. A watchcap is a shorter hat, traditionally meant to be worn folded above the ears. However, you can also wear it unfolded, rolled, double-folded, etc.
